Do you remember this story – “A local family filed a lawsuit Monday against Disneyland over claims of racism. In August 2012, Annelia Black and her family took a trip to Disneyland to celebrate her nephew’s birthday. Upon entering the gate, the White Rabbit — a character from “Alice and Wonderland” — greeted the family,” according to ABC 10 News.
The lawsuit was quietly settled this past July, with nary a media peep, according to the OC Weekly. Black family lawyer Daniel Gilleon would only confirm the case was settled, citing a confidentiality agreement.
I guess Disney is trying to make up for this mess – check out the picture atop this post. It was tweeted on Dec. 30. I also noticed that a TV ad featuring an African American family at a Disney resort has been prominently featured on many programs.
Of course the usual suspects are claiming that there is no racism at Disneyland. One can only hope.
